Barbacoa, in a word, means slow-cooked and it seems to me that usually when I see it, beef or pork is involved. These barbacoa lamb tacos were fall-off-the-bone tender and seasoned and sauced to tingly perfection. Depot Nuevo occupies a National Historic Register converted rail station from the 1890s with a charming deck in a charming village not too far from the Chicago city limits. There’s live weekend music on the village green and ample outdoor seating at the reasonable smattering of other local eateries. What’s not to like about summertime?
